Very nice game.

The Zillions implementation has the tendency to go for the draw by repetition. Often involving perpetual checking. Perpetual checking can occur if the checking player is un-willing to make an alternate move. This can be solved by setting repetition to a loss-condition, if desired.

XiangQi does not allow perpetual checking.
